PaganNewsBeagle Earthy Thursday Feb 12

Today's Earthy Thursday post supports solutions and inspirations for living. New cultural ideas including "forest bathing" from Japan; eco-art in the woods; saving Monarchs and getting paid for it; salt-water friendly potatoes and a multi-generational organic dairy.

Are you just "done in" with the Thanksgiving-until-Valentine's Day slog of commercial holidays? Maybe one of these ideas -- cultural concepts from outside North American culture -- will inspire you instead.

PaganNewsBeagle Watery Wed Jan 21

Howdy Pagan News Beagle fans! Today we are going to concentrate on stories about the actual Element of Water. (I know, revolutionary!) Today we've got atmospheric rivers; melting glaciers; growing sea ice; heavy surf; and a (possible) Saturnian lunar ocean.

This new scientific study focuses on the atmospheric rivers that arise off California (and provide much of the rainfall for the entire West Coast of North America.

The War of the Elements: A Folktale of the Latter-Day Hwicce in an Age of Climate Change

They say that once the elements were at war.

The land quaked, and the sea rose up to drown it. Wildfires raged; the winds wreaked havoc.

The people were frightened and sent a delegation of elders to the forest to speak with Him of the Horns.

They found him sitting at the foot of an oak, wearing Grass Snake around his neck. He heard their words, and when they had finished, he took Grass Snake in his hands. Grass Snake began to grow and grow until he was as big as the world. Then he wrapped his long body around the whole world and took the tip of his tail into his mouth.

In today's Earthy Thursday post, we've got stories about our one-and-only biosphere: opening North Carolina forests to logging?; thirsty forests in California; crowd-funding dark snow res in Greenland;an emerging food economy; pickling for fun and sustainability;  wonderful slot canyons.

In a move that has southern environmentalists up in arms, the US Forest service has proposed opening 70% of the massive Pisgah-Nantahala National Forest in North Carolina to industrial logging.

An unexpected side effect of climate change is fast-growing conifer forests in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. Good news? Not if you are a human (farmer or city dweller) competing for water with the increasingly thirsty trees.
